It is a great place to visit in Lebanon. It shows that the country does not consist of only archeological sites but has also great mountains. There are a lot of walking paths, churches and convents of all the religions in the country, picnic spots - a lot to do and see. If you are in Lebanon for a couple of days, it is definitely a must.

The Great Mosque

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

It is one of not many mosques which is easy to visit by no Muslims. It is a beautiful building, makes great impression and is a great place to learn more about Muslim culture. As in any mosque, remember to remove your shoes before entering, there are shelves next to the door. Wear modest clothes covering knees, elbows, etc. Women need to cover hair as well. There was a gentleman who for a small fee was renting headscarves. I definitely recommend visiting the place, religion is important part of local culture.

Taynal Mosque

Reviewed By Myles_Kenton - Jounieh, Lebanon

The mosque is best visited with a guide. It is a moving place to see, especially as it is a dynamic, living place of worship. The simplicity and the architecture made be glad to have had the opportunity to visit it several times. I recommend seeing this place and other with someone who loves Tripoli and who is able to bring the city and its attractions to lfe.

Tripoli has definitely the best souks in Lebanon. A lot of traditional products to buy with a really good prices! One of the main products which was produced and sold here in the past were soaps, very nice one made of olive, with amazing scents.

The Cedars of God

An ancient grove of cedars, the oldest in Lebanon, makes a beautiful site.

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

It is one of five Unesco sites in Lebanon. The Cedars have couple of thousands of years - they are really impressive! In the summer season you can walk around the forest. In winter there is far too much snow and you can see them from outside. It is a shame though it does not change the fact they are still impressively beautiful! There are a lot of souvenir shops around. Some shop assistants are very pushy and it's better to avoid them, but there are some calm and friendly ones as well. You can get nice things with a very good price. We bought magnets for 1 dollar each from an elderly ill gentleman - he was super charming!

St. Stephan's Cathedral

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

It is one of many similar beautiful churches around Lebanon. It is nicely located close to the harbour. If you walk around a little bit, you may catch very nice views on the facade from there. The entrance is free of charge. Worth visiting if you are in Al Batroun.
